Wrong Side (Of The Tracks) Song Lyrics and Chords by The Wilburn Brothers

 

Wrong Side (Of The Tracks)
Recorded by The Wilburn Brothers
Written by Betty Sue Perry
C 
They used to let me  
F 
play with her  
C 
awhile
 
This rich man’s daughter  
F 
with the pretty  
C 
smile
 
But I was just a  
C7 
poor man’s ragged  
F 
child
 
And  
G7 
living on the wrong side of the  
C 
tracks
 
And  
F 
social walls are hard to rise  
C 
above
 
The  
G7 
wrong side of the tracks can kill true  
C 
love
 
There’s many who must  
C7 
know what I speak  
F 
of
 
If  
G7 
they come from the wrong side of the  
C 
tracks
 
As time went by I  
F 
grew to love her  
C 
so
 
We’d slip away so  
F 
her folks wouldn’t  
C 
know
 
And with each kiss our  
C7 
love just seemed to  
F 
grow
 
Though  
G7 
I came from the wrong side of the  
C 
tracks
 
True  
F 
love made different worlds into the  
C 
same
 
It  
G7 
knows no boundaries made by social  
C 
name
 
But still her parents  
C7 
gave me all the  
F 
blame
 
Cause  
G7 
I live on the wrong side of the  
C 
tracks
 
I guess they had a  
F 
plan right from the  
C 
start
 
They vowed somehow  
F 
they’d keep we two  
C 
apart
 
They moved her far a
C7 
way and took my  
F 
heart
 
And  
G7 
left me on the wrong side of the  
C 
tracks
 
Yet  
F 
I received her letter yester
C 
day
 
She  
G7 
tells me just to wait there’ll be a  
C 
way
 
But will they kill her  
C7 
love by things they  
F 
say
 
And  
G7 
leave me on the wrong side of the  
C 
tracks
